Georgia, in particular, are considered worthy of a chance to join Europe’s elite rugby competition, given their dominance of the European Nations Championship in recent years.
I, for one, would welcome Georgia’s integration into the Six Nations but I do query why it would be necessary to relegate one of the established nations?
Why not evolve the competition into 7 Nations?
Yes, there may be issues with the calendar and the fixture list, but it can’t be beyond the wit of man, or even of rugby administrators, to find a workable solution.
A first step would be for the established six countries to start including Georgia regularly in their fixture lists, possibly in November, with a view to accepting the Georgians into the fold in due course. After all, that is what happened with Italy.
You know it makes sense.
